Europe: Shares Step Lower After Slovak Vote

Stocks in Europe moved lower in early trade Wednesday, after Slovakia last evening disapproved of enhancing the Euro-zone bailout fund, and as broker downgrades and U.S. earnings weighed on sentiment.

At the time of writing, Britain's FTSE, France's CAC and Germany's DAX were trading lower by 0.5% to 0.9%.
